Lessons and Observations:

> 1.  Stefan Grater – “never do 10 hippie hill repeats the day before a race.”
>
> 2. Brian Ricketts – “never do 28 hippie hill repeats the day before a race.”
>
> 3.  Alex Garrett – “never flop and roll on a cactus during an ultra race. And if you do, make sure it’s right next to the finish line and not 6 miles away.”
>
> 4. The fear on Chris Russell’s face trying to climb the wall with cramping oversized calves knowing Sandy was right behind him…… PRICELESS!!!!!
>
> 5. Watching Chris Russell flying down the last hill “digging deep” passing people like they were standing still was quite impressive.
>
> 6.  10k Tony is pretty fast.
>
> 7.  April 4th is Wrong Way Bowling’s birthday.
>
> 8.  The Renzo bromance has evolved and doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon.
>
> 9.  Jason Spleen Espalin was 17 seconds away from his worst possible nightmare.
>
> 10. Jason 1, Tanya 1, can’t wait for the grudge match. However, one of the two will need to undergo some significant training.
>
> 11.  Cindy Ricketts 1, Brian Ricketts 0
>
> 12.  It was nice seeing Lalo and Amanda at a trail race. It’s been awhile for me.
>
> 13.  Dang, that Matt Smith guy is fast.
>
> 14.  I think the Rockhopper ladies are tougher than the Rockhopper guys.
>
> 15.  It was weird not seeing Rich, Jean & Jessica not running together.
>
> 16.  At the end of the day I looked over at rockhopper central and it was broken down and packed up on the ground in boxes and such. I was thinking “I hope Rich has a 20 foot trailer for all this stuff.  Five minutes later I went to go help and they had it almost all put up in the back of their Suburban. It was amazing, but that’s just how they roll.  U got to Love ’em.
>
> 17.  Rockhoppers are Bad Ass!!!!
